The past decade has witnessed an explosion of information on the molecular biology of insect viruses and a frenzy of activity in applying this information to medicine and agriculture. Genetically engineered baculoviruses are presently being tested for commercial use as pesticides, and the study of such viruses is also revealing remarkable insights into basic cellular processes such as apoptosis. This comprehensive volume provides readers with knowledge of basic and applied baculovirology so that current literature in the field can be appreciated.

Industry Reviews

`A new and timely addition to the series...the chapters are consistently uniform in their clear organization and readability...an excellent resource...students of virology and scientists with peripheral interests in baculoviruses will find it the best and most comprehensive current resource on baculovirus biology.'
